    Probably one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. Seemed more like a hotel to me. The only thing I would have wanted differently is individual locks inside the room. Good location, about 15 minute walk from downtown. The staff was excellent and the hostel was a very relaxing environment and very clean. 100% would stay here again.

    Excellent hostel. Is in a former hotel building. Amazing ensuite, big rooms, big lockers, laundry, hot food, warm and friendly staff, spotlessly clean, comfy beds and linens, nice common spaces, full kitchen (with ovens), FAST reliable WiFi. The only con is it’s about a mile walk from city center and there’s no public transit stops close-by, so walking, cab, or Uber are the options.

    Excellent - though the food and drink is quite expensive. But this wasn't a problem once I realised there's a great kitchen!

    I loved the place. Very cheap accommodation in a four people bedroom with bathroom just for the room. Very very clean. It doesn't include breakfast, that's a bit disappointing but you have a great kitchen where you can do whatever you want. It's not a hostel atmosphere, so it's not the best place to make friends, at least the night I stayed there.

    The hostel facilities are very good. It definitely looks like a hotel, but with a cheap price. The atmosphere, however, is not hostel-like, at least in the days I spent there, Thursday and Friday, so it is not the place to make friends. The location is fine, you can walk to every touristic attraction in Cardiff.
